The Bruno Indictment Today

ALBANY—Retired State Senator Joseph Bruno will be indicted today, Wayne Barrett is reporting (via CapCon), confirming a rumor that has been swirling around the Capitol in recent days and which I have heard from several Democratic sources.

The Times Union has reported on how the probe focused on Bruno’s consulting business and other business dealings. Bruno has used campaign money to fund his legal defense.

Bruno retired from his seat this summer with a farewell tour. In recent weeks, various lawmakers have said his indictment was “likely” to “inevitable.”

The indictment does not come on a slow news day.
